Eggs in a spicy coconut gravy

Like i mentioned before, i am addicted to coconut milk...how easy it cooks and the taste is out of this world. I am on this coconut milk spree and wanted to try out varieties of dishes using the same. Ultimately, decided on egg for the time being. Stumbled upon this blog and followed the recipe to the dot except the following:
  • Instead of the Eastern Egg Masala, i used meat masala
  • Replaced garlic pods with 1tsp garlic paste
  • I added one tomato cut into chunks along with the water and vinegar
  • I let the eggs simmer in the coconut milk for quite some time, so that the flavours get infused and it gets coated with the gravy.
Outcome was heavenly and was a great accompaniment to puttu and chapathi the next day.

Roasted Peaches

I made Roasted Peaches for dessert- a very easy, healthy and absolutely tasty dish and can also be served for breakfast.

Peaches- 2, halved and de-stoned (You can see how to pit a peach here)
Brown sugar- 2 tsp
Butter- 1 tsp
Honey- 1 tsp
Vanilla essence- a drop (optional)

Mix all these together and brush generously on the peach halves. Place them on a baking tray and grill on high for about 15 minutes, turning occasionally. Remove, place on serving dish and pour the rest of the mix or just honey over the grilled peaches. If you want you can serve this with fresh cream or vanilla ice cream. It tasted just as good without either of those.
